I'm pretty sure it's the Totem protocol sequence # the local node
recorded for when it first "saw" the node. The "Joined" time is the
same thing, except it's according to the local node's clock instead of
the Totem token sequence #.
That's all they are. They don't indicate anything useful for

The sequence # is different the next time the node is "seen". You'll
also notice the "Joined" value is different.
The "Inc" column and "Joined" column are set at the same time but are
not related to each other value-wise.
